Polarimetric and interferometric SAR data are frequently multilook processed for speckle reduction and data compression. The statistical characteristics of multilook data are quite different from those of single-look data. In this paper, we investigate the statistics of their intensity and phase. Probability density function (PDF’s) of the multilook phase(More)
There have long been threads of investigation into covert channels, and threads of investigation into anonymity, but these two closely related areas of information hiding have not been directly associated. This paper represents an initial inquiry into the relationship between covert channel capacity and anonymity, and poses more questions than it answers.(More)
We discuss the di erent ways of de ning channel capacity for certain types of illicit communication channels. We also correct some errors from the literature, o er new proofs of some historical results, and give bounds for channel capacity. Special function techniques are employed to express the results in closed form. We conclude with examples.
OBJECTIVES Cohen's kappa coefficient is presently a standard tool for the analysis of agreement on a binary outcome between two tests. In view of the ubiquity of the use of sensitivity, specificity, raw agreement and kappa in clinical studies, clearly it is advantageous to have a useful analytic relation connecting these measures of agreement. METHODS We(More)
Prediction of life tables, which provide the most empirical information available about the statistical properties of aging, provides a rigorous test for any theory of aging as manifested at the organismic level of biological organization. For this purpose, a set of test tables for the wild boar (Sus scrofa), domestic sheep (Ovis aries), Dall sheep (Ovis(More)
We show that a certain generalized beta function B(x; y; b) which reduces to Euler’s beta functions B(x; y) when its variable b vanishes and preserves symmetry in its parameters may be represented in terms of a nite number of well known higher transcendental functions except (possibly) in the case when one of its parameters is an integer and the other is(More)
We deduce an explicit representation for the coefficients in a finite expansion of a certain class of generalized hypergeometric functions that contain multiple pairs of numeratorial and denominatorial parameters differing by positive integers. The expansion alluded to is given in terms of these coefficients and hypergeometric functions of lower order.(More)
